Women's Golf Style
Our 14 favorite pleated golf skirts that will elevate any golf wardrobe
We’ve got pleat-ridden skirts designed for performance on the course in all lengths and styles, ranging from the collegiate to the airy. While, from a distance, all of these skirts make for stylish, breezy summer staples, if you look closely each has extra detailing specified for golf. Sometimes that means hidden tee holders, no-fuss built-in shorts, or lightweight, moisture-wicking material for more comfortable, flexible play. The beauty of the pleated skirt lies in its structure: the extra fabric gives a textured design that looks fabulous with any athletic tank top, polo, or sweater, and it also swings and moves with your body, making for a freeing, flirty, on-course vibe. And whatsmore, each of these skirts was chosen with the greens and the post-round festivities in mind, which means they’ll look fresh and gorgeous no matter how long you’ve been playing in them.
Editor’s Note: Always be sure to check for any dress codes or requirements when headed to a new course and try on new skirts to make sure the length is appropriate and aligns with your comfort level and coverage needs. Some of these skirts blur the lines between golf, tennis and fashion, so hemlines may be shorter than traditional golf skirts.
